We ate dinner in all the three main eateries whilst staying on Holy Island, and this was definitely the best of the bunch. There was a good varied menu and friendly and efficient staff. We would certainly come back here if we visited the island again, and even consider staying here.

We visited here 2 years ago in July 2019. There was just something great about the place and we wanted to revisit it. This time we were staying. We arrived about 3, in the middle of the "safe crossing time". (always check the tide tables), and were shown to our rooms, after a bit of friendly banter with the natives :-D Our room was Room 1, and overlooked the Priory - Beautiful large room -table, dressing table, wardrobes, fridge. The bedding was luxurious and made me want to crawl into bed there and then. The ensuite - beautiful plenty of space, again with the luxurious towels. Perfect. We had booked dinner for 7.30, and when we arrived in the little bar area, we remembered what it was about this place. The friendliness and the food. Beautifully presented, this chef cares about what he puts on his plates. The Crab and Cockles on Toast... So prettily presented and so very tasty. Followed by - for me Spatchcock Poussin with Green bean risotto and for him - Northumbrian burger. You couldn't fault it. Dessert - there are no words. Raspberry parfait with Meringue shard, and pistachio icecream - He had Raspberry Sorbet with Coconut Fluff and Honeycomb Don't be fooled into thinking this is some of your regular pub grub - this is Crown and Anchor Pub grub and it is another level. Nice range of Ales on Draft. Himself was happy. Coffee for me was also lush. Slept like logs the two of us. Breakfast - equally exquisite. I had Kippers and poached eggs. Himself had full English. Lots of Tea and Toast. Perfect. Treat Yourself. Have a wee visit. It's just lovely.

Lindisfarne Island is a very special place. It bustles with people until the tide starts to come in and when the causeway is closed the island becomes a place a quite and tranquility. The Crown and Anchor typifies the island, rooms are clean & comfortable,food was very good and Paul and his team were very accommodating we would recommend it as a great place to stay

After the last 18 months it was lovely to receive such a warm welcome from Paul, Keith and the team. We stayed for one night and had a really tasty dinner - the best crab risotto that I have ever had. Breakfast was good too - plenty of choice and no raised eyebrows about how we liked our eggs cooking! We’ll definitely return. Jen and Dave.

Along with 4 other walkers I had the pleasure of staying at the Crown and Anchor during our Northumberland Coastal Walk. Paul and his team were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed great food and accommodation during our stay.
